Karachi: Secretary General Awami National Party (ANP) Sindh, Bashir Jan, said on Monday that his party is supporting Sindh Local Government Amendment Act 2013, and would participate in upcoming local bodies’ election under it. Talking to PPI, he said that though ANP was not in favour of such kind of Act in the past, as the assembly had passed the current Act with majority that was why being a democratic party ANP is not opposing it.

To a question, he said that his party was ready to fully participate in the LG polls on 18th January, 2014, however, if Election Commission needed some more time, it should be given it.
